“Beale street treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I believe this is a chain.... saw one in Nashville. The food and service was good. Typical menu, band was loud, but what do you expect at a Blues Club.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We went here twice. The first time late into the evening just for drinks and to listen to the blues band, which were very good. The second time we went earlier and decided to eat. The chicken tenders were burnt and to be fair the server took them back straight away. Unfortunately the second lot were not much better. Loved the music though :)

“BB King's Blues CLub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We just had a passing thru trip including Memphis and decided to see Beale Street. Unfortunately we picked a day when it poured all evening- so we cutit short. But we had made advance reservations at BB Kings Blues club- and they had a table waiting. We had a 'late lunch' type meal- including very good pulled prk and BBQ- some excellent mac and cheese and a peach cobbler for desert that was excellent. Wait staff was attentive and food delivered hot. There was an excellent band playing and since it was raining outside we stayed for two sets. We had a round of drinks for set 2 and no one tried to hurry us out even though it was fairly crowded. Overall a very nice experience

“Great Restaurant, Great Music Venue, food average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We went for late afternoon meal, ribs for my wife, brisket or me. She said 4-star, me only 3-star for the food. I have had better BBQ in many other places. The restaurant is at top of block on Beall St., nice view of street and all the action. The inside of restaurant was set up nicely with large stage for live music. We missed the music because we were there in the afternoon, rating might have been higher if we went in the evening. Attentive waiter, Jeff. Only average food though.

“Best view on Beale St.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were lucky to get a table right on Beale St. to be able to watch and hear all the sights and sounds of Memphis. We ordered sandwiches which were delicious and reasonably priced. Our waitress was very pleasant and kept coming back to check on us. Drinks were okay and a bit pricey but hey, it's Memphis and we figured the entertainment was free!
